Meet The Artist: Demonic Downshift
On Meet The Artist, we want you to get to know the musicians on our label a bit better, so we ask them five questions-- some about music, some not, and get them to tell us a little more about themselves, their tunes, and what goes on inside those creative brains. This time, we’re talking to our newest artist, based all the way in London, England, Demonic Downshift.
Describe your workspace.
It's small. There's a plant that has grown into what you could call a tree. Sometimes I wonder if the plant sees the irony in that.
If you were a piece of furniture, what would you be?
A drinks cabinet from a decade when people still thought drinking and smoking was healthy. And sexy.
What is one genre you would never want to experiment with?
Ska. I don't imagine myself ever going "I'd like to explore drunken circus music now".
What’s your favourite flower, and why?
Lily of the Valley, which Walter White used to poison Brock. Makes a cute baby shower gift.
If you had to assign a colour to your latest release, based on how it “feels,” what colour would that be and why?
It'd be the colour of concrete, dust and rust, that of a badly planned and kept urban neighborhood. My intention was for the music to sound like things are coming apart, but not without fondness. Like looking up at telephone poles, wires and ugly buildings, but it's alright, because it's a quiet night.
